[HISTORY: Adopted by the Board of Trustees of the Village of Saugerties 7-16-1984 by L.L. No. 1-1984 as Ch. 73 of the 1984 Code. Amendments noted where applicable.]
The Mayor of the Village shall issue all licenses which shall be signed by him and countersigned by the Village Clerk, who shall keep a record thereof, including the number and date of the license, the time and for which it is granted and the amount of fee to be paid therefor; and upon presentation of such license to the Treasurer of the Village, so signed and countersigned, and the payment to the Treasurer of the fee therein specified, the Treasurer shall endorse thereon his receipt of the license fee, showing that such fee is paid therefor. A license fee shall not take effect until the receipt of the Treasurer shall have been endorsed thereon showing that the fee has been paid therefor.
A license shall not be issued to any person, firm or corporation as the Mayor of the Village shall not deem to be a fit and proper person, firm or corporation to conduct the trade, occupation or business for which such license is required, and a license may be refused for any trade or occupation which shall, in the judgment of the Mayor of the Village, be carried on or is intended to be carried on in any building or place which is not provided with suitable and safe means of ingress and egress in case of panic or fire, or, which shall, in the judgment of the Village Mayor, be likely to be immoral or improper or disturb the peace and order of the Village.
Any applicant who shall have been refused a license by the Village Mayor under the provisions of this section, may apply to the Board of Trustees of the Village at a meeting thereof, for the same, and such license may be granted or refused by the Board of Trustees. The Mayor of the Village may suspend any license therefor granted until the next meeting of the Board of Trustees and thereupon such license may be continued, or may be revoked by the Board of Trustees for cause shown, after notice to the licensee. Every such license shall specify the object and length of time for which it is granted and when it shall expire. All licenses granted as provided in this section shall expire on the first day of May in each year, except such licenses as may be granted for one or more days as provided in any of the foregoing subsections of this section.
Whenever any license shall have been revoked by the Board of Trustees, a notice of such revocation shall be served by the Village Clerk upon the licensee, either personally or by mail, whereupon such license shall be of no force or effect.
